I don't see that. Maybe it was a glitch?

I'm looking forward to seeing the results too!

Edit: May I ask a silly/stupid question? Why did Dror Vomberg have to qualify for 3x3x3, and no one else did? Seems very strange.

Probably since the first round is during Shabbat. He competed in the qualifiers at Worlds too, and didn't go to the first round. What of 9q though?

9q) Events and rounds must have at least 2 competitors.

Oh, I guess that would make sense. It would seem more logical to call this an early first round, then, wouldn't it? It is a special case, anyway, which makes sense to handle - sorry I even called attention to it.

Well, presumably, but

9l) All competitors must compete in each round during the same time frame.

Strictly speaking, the regulations don't allow for handling of special cases...if 9q were taken out, though, this and many other special cases could be handled.

Now did Edouard use LBL for this 3.43 average again? If so, I will work crazy hard on LBL :D. (I'm guessing it was FL, COLL?)

By the way, there should be a live webcam for the big competitions so that we can watch those exciting competitions :D

Congrats to Rafal on some GREAT big cube BLD solves:

4x4x4: 7:54.35
5x5x5: 16:15.00

Second in the world and European records on both!
Congrats Rafal on the ER and awesome times! Also congrats on having the only success on 5x5, especially with the pressure of such a big event.

Chris
It looks like they adjusted the results; István got a 5x5x5 too, so he came in second place. Congratulations to István too for another successful 5x5x5 BLD and another new personal best!

Still no multiBLD results - I wonder how it went?
